Verse 4.7.25

अधःकरोति निष्यन्दं चन्द्रमाह्लादनं प्रिय ।
न तथा सुखयत्येषा चेतस्त्रिभुवनेशिता ॥ २५ ॥

adhaḥkaroti niṣyandaṃ candramāhlādanaṃ priya |
na tathā sukhayatyeṣā cetastribhuvaneśitā || 25 ||

Know my dear, that the delightful draught of love, defies the dewy beams distilled by the moon; and the sovereignty of the three worlds, is never so pleasing to the soul, as the love of the beloved.
